I have owned a 5.8 and another came to my attention a year or so ago... it was a 95, I think one of the last ones to leave the factory. I passed on it as getting time to sail now-a-days is becoming a challenge.. Two more years to the wake up - retirement. Then I'll start looking again.
There may come a time you may need to get critical parts like a front main beam, rudder, blade, etc.... they are getting harder and harder to come by. Just know this going in. Make sure to check those items out real close, and if they look good go for it.
Where in Central PA are you? I did a regatta on Raystown Lake years ago. One of those weekends where it was 80 degrees one day and 50 the next with rain...
Here is a boat I would strongly consider
